Fermentation Workshop: Kimchi, Sauerkraut, Pickles

Sunday October 20 * 7pm * $15-30 sliding scale (includes all materials) * REGISTER

In this workshop we will cover the basics of lacto-fermenting vegetables, and introduce possibilities for further experimentation at home. Using only salt, time, and little to no witchcraft, we will elevate humble cabbages and other fresh locally grown vegetables towards the realm of the divine. Our ferments will be full of complex flavors for your taste buds and teeming with microbiotic life to fortify your gut, not to mention enhancing your appreciation for the wonders of the microcosmos.

Fermentation/Preservation Workshop Series
